He doesn't initiate searches for individual numbers - PERIOD, one of the few areas where we agree.

A sane person would not even contemplate such an endeavor. He, and others, mine likely data repositories and reports what they find - there is NO other practical way to do it.

The insurmountable problem/challange is that only about 5% of the records have survived - many were trashed over 100 years ago. It is small solace to those waiting, but we are tremendously lucky to have what we have.
